12:06 am
thousands of women blighted by sexual violence in war torn eastern congo the news of their war to reached him in the operating theater sending his hospital into party more and. more. on this crisis has a big meaning that although it took time for the world to recognize as the world has started listening to woman. who was. amid the celebrations plenty of stories that speak to dr mcwade character and the power of his word. i thought of the man now he's getting the award because he looks after as you report you so. that's why we're all happy. let him live actually what we're suffered and face a lot of rejection from our husbands after we were raped they said we would infect them with diseases but mcquade he enlightened them and now we have peace in our
12:07 am
families but. yet later dr mcwade he dedicated his price to all women when did by conflict and confronted by sexual violence. the nobel peace prize is not the first time the world has recognized the dummies macwhich whose work has previously won the united nations human rights prize and the right livelihood award often referred to as the alternative nobel. works call is one of the right livelihoods directors and joins us from london welcome to day w a tell us more about dennis macwhich his work. as was mentioned dennis mcquade is a gynecologist he is a surgeon and he had for several decades developed methods of such a relief for women who had been affected not only by rape but also via a sister and other logical conditions then he saw more and more victims of these
12:08 am
sexualized atrocities coming into his hospital and that has turned him into the global voice against sexualized violence which he now is and he's always working he didn't just work with the women's bodies didn't he he took a much more holistic approach to healing. indeed the hospital also works on the cycle social care is. the surgery of course is important and a lot can be done to help victims but then the long perspective of how to find back into life how to find back in to their families as was mentioned when we saw the pictures from congo that is just as important as what sort of person is he. he is probably one of the most humble most humane human beings that i know of he is someone who already ate an incredible warmth although you know and you can
12:09 am
feel the suffering that he is exposed to and at the same time he turns the suffering into something positive so certainly one of the most inspiring people that i know and his work has made him an image. to me his work has made him adam is despite all the good work that he's done e.a. has enemies. indeed there have been attempts on his life there are also of threats to other people working at the hospital he received are of on the right hand one in twenty thirteen and since then he's been part of our protection program for threatened lawrence so for instance we've been financing an upgrade of security at the hospital the panzi hospital and of course unfortunately that is badly needed . now given the dangers you just outlined there by i don't know if you've spoken
12:10 am
with that is quite why does he keep doing this given the dangers facing him and his family i think because he experiences and three day how this changes the lives of the women i think also because that is his way to remain a human being seeing the suffering that he sees to be able to do something about it i mean so of course he would have numerous opportunities to just leave the country and whenever and he travels abroad a lot in order to highlight these issues but whenever he's received an international prize whenever he's been abroad he always comes back despite these risks for his life and brings uses all this international attention that he gets an international prize that he receives in order to highlight the cases of the women he is it's interesting that the as well as working as a surgeon and doing that to hugely important work he's also out in the world
12:11 am
spreading the word. indeed he is an expert surgeon but he also says i can't just keep treating these symptoms something more needs to be done about it and that he's also a very political thinker he really analyzes the backgrounds of the sexualized violence that he sees in the conflict about minerals in eastern congo that is the reason why eastern congo is so unstable and these are minerals that. are used for instance for the cell phones that we use every day like colten so in a way the whole world is co responsible for what is happening in eastern congo and he's never tiring from shining a light on these issues and bringing them to the attention of the united nations right good talking to you thank you so much for joining us all a van that looks cold from the right livelihood award. or not your mourad
12:12 am

12:13 am
will be diminished as a force and diaspora lose ground and then we will liberate the girls and women in an easier way. than are done and so it is not a question of hope can we have to combat die as though we can liberate everybody out of. the desert how do you know. what i would like to know what the end is a prize like the soccer of prize what does it mean to you you know with those that have do you think it really can really change things in spain now because that girl for the rise is very important for us for us victims. it is a huge support from the european union and for the community. to head that order for the zacharias prize will not stop diana the european union should combat diana she should hold accountable which should bring peace and stability to stop
12:14 am
this extremist ideology that is what we do not want is the re-emergence of this ideology and we do not want these crimes to be committed again yes the prize is amends to disseminate our voice because diane's changed our status not as women but as captives as no does so yet at the same. but zachariah. dignity to us and honor to us. what i can in the on to suck off what i joined the shuttle fleet got i will try to and that is something that. now you're more of a speaking with a tale because max hoffman after receiving the soccer uprising twenty sixteen stay of course she shares in the nobel peace prize with that he's quite get. to the united states not where the status is how i first procedural votes on president trumps supreme court counted us sinuses voted not only to advance the
12:15 am
nomination of judge brett kavanaugh brett kavanaugh fifty one votes to forty nine without he's a step closer to a lifetime appointment on the country's highest court a second final vote to confirm his nomination is expected on saturday this comes after several women accused him of sexual misconduct one of those women christine lacy fought to testify about a mad sexual assault for the senate judiciary committee last week is. now the house of commons confirmation straight down party lines but the final decision could be thrown into doubt by several key senators on the republican side who seem to be wavering one of them is senator susan collins and she has revealed how she will be voting on saturday the facts presented do not mean that president that perfessor ford was not sexually assaulted that night or it's some other term but they do have leads me to conclude that the allegations failed to be
12:16 am
a more likely than standard therefore i do not believe that these charges ten fairly poor bad judge kavanaugh from serving on the court. mr president i will take him for chad's cabinet. thank you mr. well sometimes even. voters in a washington welcome stefan so this looks like brant brett kavanaugh is going to get the job you're right you nailed it he got it's he gets the job after saturday it will be just a spread covering all and that full life at the supreme court of the united states you heard susan collins casting her vote there or saying she will vote tomorrow for yes for mr krevin all and with that the republicans have it there will be fifty one
12:17 am
senators voting in the senate tomorrow for mr kevin all this is fifty republicans and here we go wand democrat joe manchin he is the one who left the flock the democratic flock and announced to the tweets just a few moments ago that he will vote also for mr cavanaugh and with this mr kevin all can brief and rest a little bit live and assure us that he will be a nother judge or a justice associates on the supreme court for decades to come now there were some surprises amongst today's votes within the. yeah you can say that in the building behind me for weeks now the place and the. other place for drama and outright thriller with this confirmation and nomination brad kevin all the surprise was lisa murkowski she came out on the g.o.p. senator lisa murkowski who said no i'm not going to vote for mr kevin for very
12:18 am
specific reasons then jeff flake the other senator who had a little bit of wiggle room or where people were not sure what direction he will vote so i am for mr cavanaugh and now susan collins does that joe manchin the last surprise democrats who is now leaving the fold and is going to go in to vote for mr cavanaugh so it's a slam dunk for the republicans and make no mistake this is a huge win for the president and for the white house right behind me for president trump because now he can go out on the campaign trail and say i told you so i'll bring my people through with who i nominate and there you go you have it made protest outside the status of been chanting november is coming. yes you have a battle cry of the left or of the grooves active groups who are leaning towards democrats or to the left. make no mistake the key word here is women we're living
12:19 am
in the times of the me too movement and there are many many many women who are specifically living in urban areas rich in populous those urban areas in america who are really really upset and very very unhappy with what happened here in the last few weeks and that the senate now is apparently deciding for mr brett kavanaugh so there's a lot of people at least in the letter on the left and democrats who are fired up to say just wait for november wait for the midterms we're coming after you you're not going to be back in the house of representatives or in the senate so if you say votes in the washington thank you. well the capitol controversy has become a flashpoint in the may two movement against sexual harassment by men in power it's been a year since the movement took off spot by explosive allegations against hollywood producer harvey weinstein on me to remains a powerful force on social media social media editor richard reed hospital welcome
12:20 am
let's take a look back at them how did meet to start the made to social media movement that we know it began a year ago but actually made two began in two thousand and six and it was established by an american civil rights activist named to run a book but it wasn't until the harvey weinstein's story broke that the rest of the world really heard about me and that was because of a tweet by the american actress melissa milan she writes here if you've been sexually harassed or resulted reply to these tweets reply me to to these twenty fold the women who've been assaulted write me to resist at us we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem and within a day how to million people responded to these tweets and many millions more on facebook too and so then this sort of ignited this movement where women all around the world in all sorts of fields spoke out about men often very powerful men accused of sexually abusive behavior but it wasn't just into time and it was all of
12:21 am
all types of industries like the take industry the media industry sports academia and you know we're learning things that we didn't know a year ago and this is all happened in the space of a you know. sort of conversations in this era talks are still with us right so a lot of the stories that have come out of me too are of women speaking often for the very first time about their results that have happened many many years ago and this is led to another conversation as to why people whites are long to speak out if they indeed do at all and a good example of this is donald trump republic lee question why. dr christina just heard from. long to make these claims of brant against brett kavanaugh this spot another hash tag on me too and it's called why i didn't report some of the stories are quite sad one person writes i thought it was normal and that i'd probably
12:22 am
brought it on myself i thought nobody would care i thought i wasn't important enough to bother i thought i was alarmed and from the actress daryl hannah i did report but it didn't masha i was just amazed disparaged and i still get blamed why i didn't report now of course not everyone supports me to a lot of people feel it's trial by. a people on the other side of the fence feel quite often the legal systems don't protect victims enough before and after assaults and this is why they turn to social media to to have their voices heard which is part of the reason my two made to you has exploited it thanks so much. leading figures in germany's jewish community are sounding the alarm after the far right of terms if the a.f.p. said it was setting up a jewish group within the party if he has faced criticism after failing to sanction
12:23 am
members for downplaying the holocaust and the harboring links to neo nazis seventeen jewish organizations have issued a statement saying that no citizen of germany who cared about democracy could identify with the f.d.a. . that he knew in a town this jewish and he supports the f.t. when he was nineteen he left ukraine and the discrimination he felt there is a jew and came to germany now he fears anti-semitism here. there are lots of problems in germany which weren't there before and they're only being addressed by the i think on. what i'm talking about the clear idea semitism you can see in the qur'an and one in koran. because there are so many migrants from the region that has this religion it's clear that we're going to see more and more anti-semitism in germany. on thirty's were from birth from who
12:24 am
was five was hot to some observers it might seem paradoxical for jewish people to join the h.d. but they have and on sunday this setting up a formal group in the party. the spokesman is dimitri shorts he's a jew from the former soviet union and he sees if he is the only party fighting muslim anti-semitism i doubt it's the future torch of the unfortunately many germans have no sense of homeland. this homeland is in danger. that one spot pulling institute says anti-semitism is much more prevalent in the a.s.d. than in other parties and the f.t. leadership has faced repeated criticism for playing down the crimes of the nazis were still there in the nazis and no more than a speck of bird poop in more than a thousand years of successful german history. sergey like routines he is a leading member of presidents jewish community and as far as he's concerned jews
12:25 am
joining the if he is a bad joke but he says the party is resonating with some jewish groups we shouldn't forget that about ninety percent of jewish people in germany are also all of eastern european origin or mostly come from the soviet union and bring the whole baggage of stereotypes and a kind of a. liberal understanding of democracy and also there are people who are german speakers speaking who. are right wing and who are trying to use this and instrument a lot as this feeling and this is what we're seeing. the jews in the age group would get short shrift at the mazeltov and berlin the jewish own across the pinsky sees the group as no more than a tactic to divert attention from if de. irreconcilable jews cannot be involved in a party which is clearly associated with anti semitic motivations and anti semitic
12:26 am
people it doesn't make sense to trust people like that and mention. that kinski believes that if he is clearly anti-semitic and a group of jews in the party won't change that. the german state of bavaria holds elections in just over a week that being seen as a crucial test the chance of america's conservatives and their very end when the c.s.u. but this week social media has been running wild over one particular campaign promise the variance in space it started with this tweet from state premier baucus soda talking about various investment in future technologies such as the hyperloop and the space program. goals it's the logo that's really caused a stir meeting varia was on talk about mission future on the bottom and there in
